There's your Paul Rudd!

Hmmmm, why was Renee Zellwhatserpickle never the same after marrying Kenny Whathisname??

Sugar said...

Richard Hatch?!?!?! That's a joke, right?

Bacon Ranch said...

Rob Reiner's def could easily fit Ron Howard as well.

LottaColada said...

I can breathe now. Paul Rudd is A!

Ummm..... too many Z listers in this batch. Pauly Shore? The fuck is a Peyton List?

sugarbread maker said...

Reese is a queen betch?? No!!
Renee Z. Found out that Kenney was gay and got the says for life.

Ray Nicolet said...

Thanks for including Pee-Wee!

Ray Nicolet said...

Of course he's A. He's gonna be Ant Man!

AndrewBW said...

Compiled ratings are here:

A to D List Rankings

Karen said...

The Renee/Kenny thing has always intrigued me. They were only married for four months after dating a very short time. Something more had to have happened than her finding out he was gay/cheating on her.

She also dated Bradley Cooper, though, so maybe she's just attracted to the wrong guys all the time.

WareCat said...

Pauly Shore & Pee Wee r forever A list.
I kno u r, but wat am I?

Leekalicious said...

The Larry King and Regis Grumpy Old Men Show would be terrific!

FSP said...

OT - Fred Phelps died.

cubsfan1990 said...

these blind items make no sense,
can someone explain why there there is blind for every actor in the biz.

LottaColada said...

@FSP, the WBC guy?

Seven of Eleven said...

@Karen, same here! And the divorce (annulment?) said "fraud". Extra level of intrigue!

E, thank you for Paul Rudd. I haven't really been paying attention but Paul Rudd is my pretend husband.

LottaColada said...

@Ray, is he really?!

Anna Belle said...

Richard Hatch?

I do like PeeWee. Reese is a serious piece of work, glad her mask is finally showing some cracks...Portia has limited acting range, not just due to her looks, it has to do with the way she speaks, I don't know who she worked with to lose the AU accent, but it just sucks...she'd probably get more work if she worked with a new acting coach, but doesn't think she needs to...Rebeccas made some stupid career & dating choices back when she was getting the hype to be the next big thing...she's been given too many chances & is now just getting too old

WareCat said...

Let's fukn picket!

Nutty_Flavor said...

Don't think it's fair that Paul Walker is a 'former A list actor' just because he's dead. Are Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and Judy Garland all 'former A listers' too?

Anna Belle said...

I think after Rene got her Oscar she just sortof stopped working...I think she also just had a few too many relationships bomb...she was also involved with Jack White & Bradley Cooper after Kenny, her & George had a think going on to, which used to make me wonder if she has perhaps done some things she's not all too proud of for some roles....

Anna Belle said...

Paula Abdul is crazy, but she's fun....I think all the medications she's taken over the years have taken their toll on her...she has talked about some of the serious injuries she's gotten from being a Laker girl

Ray Nicolet said...

Yup!! Its gonna be amazing.

I kind of like what Rob Lowe has done with his career. He's taken on a lot of interesting roles, most recently the plastic surgeon in 'Liberace.'

He and Tom Cruise were both in 'The Outsiders' (as were Emilio Estevez, Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, Ralph Macchio and Diane Lane, as well as C. Thomas Howell, who was supposed to be the great young discovery from that movie)....but Cruise's career has been kind of vanilla, at least for the past 10 years or so, since 'Collateral.'

I kind of like the Rob Lowe path better. Although maybe now that both of them are aging out of the Hero bracket, Cruise will take on some more interesting roles.

Renoblondee said...

I don't know who the Rubino person is, but she's A list?

Slap-n-Tickle said...

C. Thomas Howell's career was killed by "Soul Man" sadly. He had a pretty good thing going until that extremely poor choice.

Leekalicious said...

@FSP Yay!!!Yay! This makes my week.

Anna Belle said...

The sex tape & the Oscars with Snow White are what hurt Rob Lowe the most...getting a successful prime time show "the west wing" is what helped his career & the fact that he's been married for along time by HW standards with kids...never really was much of a fan of his on Parks & Rec, having him on for a season made sense but to keep his character for as long as they did, didn't

skimpymist said...

As the T's approach im hoping thora birch is on the list.

WareCat said...

#wheezingthejuice

msgirl said...

Rob Reiner - permanent A+ Just for The Princess Bride.

Ray Nicolet said...

You are literally so wrong about him on P&R.

Slap-n-Tickle said...

I love you so much right now, Warecat.

Miri said...

Sarsgaard isn't really that difficult of a name. Come on now.

Bacon Ranch said...

Nutty, I love "The Outsiders"!
Also my guilty pleasure is (don't tell anyone) Tom Cruise movies. He really is a great actor. So good that I forget he's a batshit crazy nutball. Collateral is a good example.

Never got the fluff with Vanilla Sky but hey, different strokes.

Outsiders, what a great example of a movie that launched numerous careers. Whoever you are, there is a guy you want to know in that film.

I'm sure Anna Belle can come in and share some info behind it (here's hoping!)

ethorne said...

LOL @Lotta! Peyton List sounds like a rehab sign-in sheet.

rajahcat said...

Housewives are all D list

Fiennes is a super talent.......deserves to be A list, but may never be. Maybe he's better off a little under the radar though.

rajahcat said...

Paula's injuries were from dance moves on her videos......as I recall Cold Hearted Snake.

she is fun though.....agreed....she's forever my girl

Sabrina said...

What is the poit of leaving some names for a list if they are not going to be listed? meh.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

@Bacon - That period from Rain Man up until Magnolia. Tom would knock it the fuck out of the park. He was a very good actor. I admired him for working with the best of the best (Kubrick, Scorsese, Spielberg, Coppola, De Palma, Anderson). Now all his movies are about fighting robots and shit. Too bad he pissed Spielberg off. Minority Report might be the last great TC movie.

LottaColada said...

@ethorne- she sounds like a peyote trip.

TalksTooMuch said...

Minority Report was such a good movie; totally redeemed TC for me

parissucksliterally said...

I guarantee half the people on this planet could not name Paulina Rubio, or know what she does for a living. How the fuck is she A list?

I gave up after seeing Jodie and Cate Blanchett were B list here. What a crock of shit.

Liz L said...

Is it sad that I am making this into a sortable excel list?

msgirl said...

Jason, he was also great in Fourth of July. Before his ego took over when was eager to work as second billing under the likes of Dustin and Newman. Them he became too much of control freak, you could probably chat his COS brainwashing through his career. He stopped being an actor when he lost his soul.

Orvilla Bedinbacher said...

That's so Raven!

DommyMommy said...

Why leave out Pattinson when Enty has pics almost daily?

sugarbread maker said...

How did tc. Piss Spielberg off? You have the best gossip. You are one of my favorites

Jason Blue Eyes said...

@Sugar - Spielberg felt Tom was taking attention from the promotion of War Of The Worlds with all his Katie gushing when that movie came out. Spielberg doesn't like it when personal lives overshadow the work.

Word @TTM. And the music in that movie. John Williams is da man.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Thank you, Sugar.

Now I sound like Paula Deen.

sugarbread maker said...

@Jason be. welcome. I remember the red carpet big splashy fake kissy kissy now. I just didn't know it caused a riff with him and steven.
I really did appreciate the work tom did up until his divorce. like someone said earlier- you can chart his career decline by how much co$ got their hooks into him. magnolia, 4th of july. great stuff. he really was trying to be an ACTOR now he just wants to be EGO MOVIE STAR, judt like will smith. co$ got a hold of him too. mone$y over craft. 40% to church.

QC said...

Lots of people missing in these lists, Enty will need to do "Rankings Vol 2" to cover the others, or should we believe that anyone out of this list was never in a single blind? C'mon... I didn't see Charlize on the list and we got Moon Zappa? Seriously, is she blind worthy?

Pip Squeak said...

I love Paul Rudd too, but there's no way he is A to Cate Blanchett's B. I'm bitching about her ranking, not his, though to be honest I think he is more B. Has he ever been the star of anything, and that includes I Love You, Man, where Jason was the real star? ILYM was filmed five years ago. Other than that, he's always been a supporting actor, mainly in comedies. As I said, I like the guy, will watch him at home on PPV, but usually he's just a perk to the cast. How is that A status?
